of the state department has issued a report on the events that took place in benghazi, september 11 of this year. i think it is excellent. there are other committees in congress that have begun other investigations and i think that each of these will contribute to our understanding of what happened in benghazi and help to make sure that nothing like it happens again. under the senate rules, our committee has a special responsibility for oversight. as i said, for the interaction of different agencies of government, it is through that lens that after the tragic events of benghazi on such a member leventhal, the senator and i began our investigation. obviously we were time limited by the end of this year and end of this congress, the end of my service here. i am grateful not only to the senator for once again the extraordinary by partisanship we have had, but also our staffs who have worked together for well. they really work through the holiday when i must ask for my benghazi team to come down to our first floor office. the numbers were smaller than they had been earlier, but they had
the benghazi attack. it said deficiencies at the state department led to the attack. >> good afternoon, i am joined by other senators to comment on the tragedy surrounding benghazi. it has been more than three months after the attack that killed four americans, including the ambassador. the american people are beginning to get the answers they deserve, but there are more relevant questions that still need to be answered. the report of the state department's accountability board -- review board is a serious and credible effort that identifies failures of officials and institutions in the department. several people have lost their jobs. it is a good start, but only a start. the tragedy raised other serious questions about our military, intelligence community, and perhaps most importantly the administration's so-called light footprint approach to libya. it does not provide answers to these questions because it never asked them. eight is essential for the department to conduct an accountability effort on the occasion of the worst terrorist attack in american history of repeated attacks on u.s. a

. the house foreign affairs committee, secretary clinton to testify before the committee on benghazi and the accountability review board. the u.s. house of representatives committee on foreign affairs will hold a hearing on thursday, december 20 on the benghazi attacke. secretary clinton will be testifying. c-span will cover this on thursday at 1:00 p.m. eastern time. c-span cameras will be there. front page of the national journal this morning -- on tuesday he delivered the gop talking points about the need for more spending cuts as part of any deal, while downplaying the role of raising income-tax rates on wealthier earners, which the white house trumpets often. boosting rates on the rich, he said, would provide enough money to run the government for eight days. that has nothing to do with spending, getting spending in line. other than performing requisite task, mitch mcconnell has not emerged as a huge presence in the ongoing fiscal cliff narrative. that is a change from past budget and tax deals where his finger prints were evident, a fact that could affect the final outcome or s
on legal issues fast and furious, benghazi, the way you conducted yourself in front of the nation makes us all proud. jeff couldn't be here. he has passed legislation that would make this nation energy independent. that is pretty impressive for somebody that has been in the house for one term and newly elected. tom, you bring to the table problem solving. you're chairman of the county council. you understand your district has got a lot of opportunity. you're the cash cow for the state. all of us are going to myrtle beach one day. that's the american dream to go to myrtle beach and he brings height to the delegation. so welcome. tim, the only advice i can give you is that you got here by being tim scott, not lindsey graham, not jim demint, just keep being tim scott and that will be good for our state. you have a unique opportunity for the conservative cause. you have unique burdens. i want to help you where i can. anything my office can do to help you get started we will do. the only advice i can give you is just keep being the good person you are. the thing about tim, not only is he good a
to update you on the benghazi report that came out of the state department yesterday. it should be made public on wednesday. here is the "baltimore sun." benghazi "rasmussen reports"s hearings are set the high level state department investigative panel turned over a secret report assessing blame in the attacks -- look for our coverage of hose public hearings on c-span. for details go to our website, c-span.org. also from the administration cabinet pick could be revealed on friday. obama's nominees for state and defense but so-called cliff talks made delay announcement. back to our topic here for all of you. sandra in massachusetts, independent caller. sandra, what is the role, if anything, of the federal state government in mental health? caller: well, they need to step right in right now and address the facts that hey, maybe one of them are like this. they, too, who are making these laws are not governing very well because one, you don't get the drugs you need. i know that for a fact because mental health runs on -- in our family. and two, the children and stuff like that are overdrug,
should be speaking more to the loss of brave americans in benghazi, libya, why is she the one that is pinpointed, pinpointed, pointed and with, i think, inappropriate accusations casting aspersions and doing damage to a reputation of service that is undeserving. so my words are simply this, let's be fair. let's carry on our rights as members of congress and speak to the issue of what a tragic incident that occurred in benghazi. if there is a nomination, which i hope there will be, among the many talented people that the president has, it will be his choice, senators that are eager, friends of mine, senator kerry, and others, may have this opportunity. but let us hold to the premise that you are innocent until proven guilty. that someone's great service is deserving of respect, and she is deserving of respect. susan rice is deserving of respect. let me move quickly to this idea that america cannot settle its issues of financial concern before the fiscal deadline. and see there is no cliff, because as we all well know, the simple premise of making sure that we have tax cuts for
objection, so ordered. >> mr. speaker, yesterday was a three-month anniversary of the benghazi, libya, where four people died. mr. wolf: to date, none of the terrorists have been brought to justice. following the attack, the tuesday kneesan government blocked the f.b.i. from interviewing the only detained man. the f.b.i. team has been there for five weeks, and they will not make him available. jans of 2011, the u.s. has given more than $320,000 taxpayer dollars to tunisia. i ask that all u.s. aid to tunisia be cut off because they're blocking the attempt to investigate the terrorist. why are we giving any sort of aid to a country that's proven at this time is no friend or ally to the united states? why are we not doing everything in our power to investigate the events in benghazi that killed four americans? should secretary clinton fail to cut off aid to tunisia, i will take legislative action to cut off the aid to tunisia. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the time of the gentleman has expired. for what purpose does the gentleman from washington seek recognition?
. and this president is committed to just that. but the other topics -- benghazi. the state department said secretary clinton received the report from the review board. can you give us the idea of when you expect the president may receive that and what kind of action the white house may take to prevent another terror event? >> i don't have a timetable for you in terms of that process, when the report moves from the state department. the president has looked forward to the review board to work as he looks forward to the completion of the investigation by the fbi. so it is hard to say what action he will take because we have not seen the reports. >> the fbi is still investigating as well. do you have any sense the last time the president got an update from the fbi as to where their investigation of benghazi stance. also, secretary clinton has been ill obviously and no one would expect to testify right now but is the administration committed to have her testify before she leaves office? >> i would ask the state department about her schedule and her illness that she is dealing with. but i certainly am no
we find ourselves in. in september, the world watched as a violence raid in our embassy in benghazi, libya, took ambassador stevens and three who worked as security officers. these men gave their life to provide security for american diplomats in a country struggling for change. there is an enemy that threatens american ideals and our way of life. let's ensure that the policies shaping our immigration laws do not create a greater hindrance to us in this fight. with this bill under consideration today, we have the opportunity to recognize the legal permanent res. -- residents should they be working with the state department as executive level security personnel, interpreter, translator regarding their continuous residence and physical presence requirements. i ask the house to support this commonsense reasonable legislation to make sure that we recognize individuals who are serving our country, legal residents who are serving in very dangerous places, serving in our state department that they be given the recognition they deserve and a proper pathway to citizenship. thank you. at this
, "the u.s. knew for years about the benghazi extremism." front page of "the new york times" has this story, "mortgage crisis brings a new reckoning to banks. in the worst case for the industry, the bill is near $300 billion." this is from the money section of "usa today." "future possible, the federal reserve is expected to take another step tuesday to stimulate the lackluster recovery with more treasury bonds to push down long-term interest rates bahut -- interest rates. host: also sticking with housing, from "the wall street journal" this morning, "high earners dropping scrutiny." "hundreds of senior managers that earned more than $200,000 last year -- host: charleston, west virginia, democratic caller. what are you willing to sacrifice? caller: i would not mind paying a little extra in taxes if i thought it was really going to help. one thing that people have to remember, the current tax burden on the american public right now is the lowest it has been since 1959. that is the year i was born. one friend of mine who makes over $250,000 per year, which entitle him to the bush e
about what happened in benghazi. if we paid more attention to the c.i.a. we probably would still have some of our officials alive but that's gone. it's over. but we have to recognize that putting the c.i.a. more and more in a paramilitary position is not in the best interest of this country, i don't believe. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the gentleman from michigan. . mr. rogers: i yield myself such time as i may consume. thank you very much. the gentleman and i have had these conversations and i respect his position greatly and the work he does in congress. i have some disagreements. i tell you why, and i hope that the gentleman will consider voting for this bill today. the amount of oversight that the ranking member and i have increased on programs that may have -- that may have concerns on behalf of americans, because we have the same concerns, there are tools that america nages in, including air strikes. air strikes have been something that we have used since we could figure out how to get something off the ground and throw something at the grou
objected because of the benghazi situation. you'll recall there was an attack on the consulate on september 11th. initially the administration said it was because of an protest of an anti-islam film that got out of hand. that's what susan rice said five days after the attack. it turns out it was a pre-planned terrorist attack. so a lot of criticism over what she said immediately after the attack and basically republicans use that had to sink the prospect of her nomination. >> host: is it unusual since she wasn't formally nominated for her to be the subject of floor speeches and committee hearings and her nomination being talked about so heavily? guest: it's happened before but not like it's happening right now. susan rice's nomination was basically sht down before she was nominated and we have a similar situation. talk of chuck hagel might be nominated. well, he has a lot of critics over in the senate too particularly among the republicans and they appear to have shot down his nomination. now it's considered unlikely. so he got preemptive nomination fights. and i think that's relatively new
on the floor. the current farm bill expires today. a senate committee report on the benghazi terrorist attack produced by the senate homeland security committee is faulting the state department for failing to adequately respond to mounting security threats. the report says the facility was woefully under protected at a time when the region, according to adopt a provision, was " flashing red." the chairman and ranking member of the committee, senator joe lieberman and susan collins of maine, released a report at a news conference this morning. you can hear it later in our programming schedule. those are some of the latest headlines on c-span radio. >> c-span has a laudable objective coverage as far as the elections, so i really tune in to see c-span to see a lot of the debate coverage as well as the presidential elections. c-span also has a variety of programs that show the hearings on the hill, weather is the house and senate intelligence, homeland security hearings, i really to an end to those. there are great coverage. -- i really tune in to those. c-span is underrated. anytime i can watch
september 11, four americans, including our ambassador, were killed in benghazi. the responsibility for security failures has now been placed on the state department. end of story? no. the deeper question is why did the u.s. intervene in libya in the first place. 20 months after a u.s.-led mission to overthrow the libyan government, militias are still battling in the streets for control. al qaeda-linked groups have a foothold in libya they did not have before u.s. intervention. why did we spend u.s. tax dollars to open the door for al qaeda in libya? the intervention itself was a disaster and it makes the case that the u.s. government's policy of intervention in libya was wrong and that everything that proceeds from that intervention is bound to be tainted. the book says, that which is crooked cannot be made straight. nothing will ever be made straight about u.s. intervention in libya. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. for what purpose does the gentleman from south carolina rise? without objection. mr. wilson: madam speaker, with the negotiations surrounding
